A Different Point Of View

Standard

I may indulge

in upside down

visions a different

point of

view

giving you pictures

of reflections

shadows clouds

and waters

.

all fleeting

all temporarily

true

Il mio orto

Standard

Sundays’ poems are dedicated to Italian Poetry

il mio orto a spirale

ha prodotto abbondanza

nascondendo la struttura

non percorribile

.

nel suo pieno arrivata

la stagione

.

Now

Standard

*

now it’s my turn

to be sitting on

a park bench

alone listening

something is coming

what is is coming

.

.

This was the only English poem performed on my first poetic reading after the Covid-19 lockdown, last weekend, when asked to do a public reading during the finissage of an art show Called Opulenza Vegetale (Vegetable Opulence). The performance took place in an old site, a church dated 1289, in Italy. If interested in a short video click here, Now.

Dedicated To Generation Female

Standard

*

lead me my heart

where I am welcomed

.

with joy and gratitude

hold me there with laughter

.

pin me with sweet thoughts

of greatness so that I may

.

shine forever not lamenting

nor lacking lead me

.

to my own

independence

.

The poem, written in August, I dedicate to all the people participating to the Generation Female Global Summit where I will be one of the speakers! I hope to see you there, tomorrow, where you can ask me questions or hear my story, it would be lovely. Please click here to enroll.

Come With Me

Standard

Come with me today to my poetry reading in the Coachella Valley in California!

It will take you only 3’09” to be with me and virtually fly there as I introduce you to my poems.

The book I’m reading from, California Notebooks 01 was written there. I wanted to give back to the desert, with this reading, the inspiration it bestowed on me.

This book is dedicated

to those souls whose flesh is too tight

to those whose dreams are real and reality seems

to be a dream

In Spite Of Me

Standard

*

when my words
surfacing out of
poetry define
who am I
I cry

I also
rejoice and
stand still as
if suspended
all at the same
exact

time holding
that tiny particle
of truth inside me
that shining in spite
of me

.

.

Seasons

Standard

*

I end up at times

visiting old friends

dinners stretching

.

over time feeding

our souls

the privilege

.

of recalling

the spirit’s

visitations

.

our hearts

a candle burning

quietly

.

steadily shaking

in the evening

breeze leaves

.

we are made to fall

and to die

full of colors

.

when it’s season

.

.

“Not Rosaries Nor Missals” is a collections of poems started on July 2013. This poem comes from that collection.

l

Everlasting

Standard

*

life as a bird

an egg in a nest

in unexpected

 

places hidden

cared for and guarded

with parental

 

love cracking to

the first light revelation

being fed and

 

taught to sing

before I could fly out

into everlasting

.

.


.

Removed

Standard
*
under or above
removed from usual
grounds from valleys
to enter quieter realms
stillness and marvel
to be marginal
observing whether
with fish or birds
a new silence
lingering in
eternity

This poem is part of the collection Crossing Riviera.

Not sure it works for poems… even the Schedule seems more lengthy and complicated and, sorry for the past few weeks, missing the usual posting time and dates – I was experimenting with the Block Editor!
